Yeah, this new trailer for the upcoming The Suicide Squad is bananas. Partially a soft reboot. Kind of a sequel, but this new trailer, which dropped earlier this week, is all James Gunn.

A look at this new red band teaser absolutely promises a new take on Task Force X. The filmmaker recently broke down some of the biggest moments in the new sneak peek, revealing lots of fresh details along the way.

We now learn newcomer Weasel’s role to what inspired Harley Quinn’s new look and even more intel about the big bad, Starro The Suicide Squad‘s big bad, there’s plenty to delve into here. Watch the insanity below:

Here’s the official description from Warner Bros.

From writer/director James Gunn comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero action-adventure The Suicide Squad, featuring a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup.

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment?

Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain
Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement.

And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

The Suicide Squad is set for release nationwide in theaters and IMAX on August 6, 2021 and will be available on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release.
